Well, this code won't be released until 8.3 is anyway...

I imagine it's not there already because when passed to pg_dump, the
file will get overwritten every time. We'd need to add an append option
to pg_dump as well. which seems a bit ugly. At first thought I figured
there was more to it than that, but maybe not. I'll raise it on
pgsql-hackers and see what objections are raised.

Cheers, Dave.
